McKee Family

It was recently brought to my attention that the immigration information I have here is incorrect. I will be studying this and posting more accurate data here in the near future. Please check back for updates.




This information was given to me by a family member. I have only verified some of it on my own. Any corrections or additions are welcome! Click here to email me.

This branch of McKee's goes back to County Antrim, Ireland in the 1770's. They made their journey to the Colonies on the ship "Free Mason", landing in Charleston, South Carolina on December 22, 1877. The trip from Ireland to South Carolina took about 7 weeks. Sometimes the passengers on these ships were afflicted with smallpox and died onboard, or shortly after arrival in America. One McKee child, a four year old daughter of William McKee, is believed to have died this way.
